After six years of marriage, rumors are swirling that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are heading for a divorce.
And in recent weeks, Nick has done little to quell rumors of trouble, giving In Touch a terse “no comment” when asked in late June if he and Mariah, 44, were splitting. Instead, he tellingly added that he puts his kids, twins Moroccan and Monroe — not his wife — “before everything.”
The strain seems to be taking a toll on Mariah as well. At the Hercules afterparty on July 23, “she got carried away with her drinking,” an eyewitness, who saw her down two (!) bottles of champagne, tells In Touch. “She seemed so drunk, her bodyguards had to help her walk out.”
“They’re both pouring their energy into their careers, and neither seems interested in fighting to save the marriage,” an insider exclusively shares, noting that with a combined $495 million fortune, a formal split will be “a financial nightmare to untangle” even though they have a prenup.
